In brief: Overnight lap

Depending on the size of the hernia you usually stay overnight or two days.
While a few places may offer it as a same day procedure it requires being careful with discharge instructions. It is standard to do it using laparoscopy or small incisions. It can have more complications if done with a large open incision - usually longer recovery and pain.
